day in denver today, tamron. first of all. >> nice weather report, eugene. >> obama says nothing new on the tape and it was covered years aleen sirgany but fair it is all fair in politics. if it's on tape, you can put it out. the way it was put out by the daily caller, it was -- i guess you had very to say it was racist in its intent. i mean, clearly, it's supposed to rile up some sort of racial animus against president obama, but he doesn't really say anything in the tape that's all that con throw ver eggs. so i don't know whether it takes the romney/ryan partisans to harp on that. >> politico's headline was obama '07 video, shock or schlock? obama video reveals everything that we already knew in the l.a. times and "huffington post," drudge daily caller hype old obama speech trolling entire political world. chip, i want to bring you in on this, kevin madison with the romney campaign, he was on cbs, he was asked about this tape. let me play it. >> we believe, as a campaign, i think governor romney believes what is most relevant is the president's policies and how they are affecting t
we replied of the president. what do we expect from president obama in denver? is he going to be sharp or is he going to be rusty? >> look, i think he is going to be plenty sharp. remember, mitt romney spent all those debates, the 23 where everybody said he won 19 of them debating within a pretty narrow window ideologically. barack obama has been dealing with people all across the spectrum, the house republicans in particular, for at least two years now. and when he is kind of tangling with the press, he is getting questions from all angles. so i think he is going to be okay. i know the white house is trying to downplay it and say how, you know, romney is -- the fact of the matter is i think obama needs to remind people what he has done. he needs to stay cool, calm, and collected. i think the challenge is we see romney being so robotic from time to time and saying these somewhat goofy things, the $10,000 bet, you know, i like firing people, those kind of things. and i think the challenge for obama is not frankly to pounce on those. he knows exactly what romney is going to b
